TitleCopy letter from A H White, to Mr Robert William Frederick Harrison
Date13 August 1906
DescriptionSends a line regarding vacation work and arrangements. Regarding the catalogue Robinson and White are doubtful of their getting two hours a day to work on it. Regarding shelving Mr Bottomley expects to have the shelves fixed by the end of the month or beginning of September. Also discusses cleaning.

Explains why it would not be convenient to alter his usual holiday dates, mentions that this is a small point but that his salary is also small. Would like to take the remainder of his holiday quite late, and is prepared to forego something and take a fortnight instead of 20 days. Notes that he is very busy in August and September and half the time does not go out to lunch nor leave till [late], in order to keep his head above water and not be altogether swamped by work.
